To rev up audiences for its feature film, Need for Speed, DreamWorks Pictures has been debuting featurettes every Tuesday. This time we get a behind-the-scenes look at some of the biggest stars of the movie: the cars.
Based on the best-selling racing video game series, Need for Speed pits blue-collar mechanic Tobey Marshall (Aaron Paul) against an ex-NASCAR driver Dino Brewster (Dominic Cooper) in a dangerous underground race. Marshall is out for revenge against Brewster who framed him for manslaughter but he will have to dodge cops and Dino’s bounty hunters along the way.
The film promises plenty of intense racing action, which means they need cars that are up to the task.
Check out the featurette below to see how the production uses replica vehicles that match the look, feel, and speed of multi-million dollar cars.
Also starring Imogen Poots, Kid Cudi, and Michael Keaton, Need for Speed hits theaters in the UK on March 12 and in the U.S. on March 14.
